Andy Murray, three time Grandslam champion will arguably go down as one of the most decorated players in tennis history. Although, the Briton does not as much success as his Big Three rivals, yet he remains the only player to defend his Olympic Singles gold medal.

Andy Murray suffered a career threatening hip injury in 2017, and despite recovering from the injury, he has never quite been able to reach his top form. The Briton plays selective tournaments, and no longer reaches the latter stages of the tournaments. However, Andy Murray stressed on the importance of being reasonable with his expectations, given his struggles with a hip injury.

Andy Murray stated that he has to reasonable with his expectations, but at the same time, he has been making many mistakes which have hurt him. The Briton has been ranked outside the top 50 rankings for quite a while now, but he believes that his current level of tennis does not deserve for him to be ranked inside the top 50.

Andy Murray said that the positive thing is that he is improving his serve, but at the same time, there is no real consistency. “The positive thing is that I moved well and served well but my level is up and down with no real consistency,” said Murray.

There are moments in matches where I play well and then I make mistakes or miss returns. I wish I wasn’t doing that. My level is around 50 or 60 in the world. It’s frustrating because if wasn’t moving great and not feeling good physically then I would be a bit easier on myself,” he added.
